Ratings & Reviews

94 Points & "Highly Recommended" - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Intense, with fig, blackberry and plum compote flavors rolling over one another, while worn leather, Turkish coffee and well-roasted mesquite notes form a ring around them. Overall this is rich and dense, yet there's definition throughout. Only needs time to knit fully before delivering its peak experience. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2035. 3,000 cases made." – JM (Feb 28, 2018)

90-92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Vivid ruby. Powerful mineral- and spice-accented red fruit liqueur aromas show impressive clarity and pick up a sexy floral nuance as the wine opens up. Gently sweet, sappy and focused, offering palate-coating raspberry and cherry compote flavors, along with hints of succulent herbs and candied flowers. Rich, in the style of the vintage, yet vibrant as well. Finishes on a juicy note, displaying subtle tannins and strong, spice-tinged persistence." - Josh Raynolds (Mar 2017)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a plush, silky wine that can be consumed over its first ten years of life. Cherry and cola notes finish with a touch of warmth." - Joe Czerwinski (31st Oct 2017)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Leading off the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a pretty, medium to full-bodied, forward effort that gives up lots of cherries, plum, spice and garrigue aromatics. This front-end loaded beauty has sweet tannin and is already hard to resist. Drink it through 2025." (10/19/2017)
